You haven't been loved until you've been loved by a Brussels Griffon. His impish charm and utter devotion to his human are irresistible. But he's no pushover. Lively, smart, and maybe a little bit bossy, there's a giant personality tucked into the little body. Here are seven reasons why a Brussels Griffon is the best best friend ever:

  1. Nicknamed “velcro on four legs,” he wants nothing more than to be with you. His favorite place is snuggled on your shoulder.

  2. Brussels Griffons are known for their almost-human expression. The broad under-jaw, up-tilted little nose and luminous dark eyes say more than words ever could.

  3. But he's no couch potato. In fact, he's so athletic and energetic that you'll always have an activity buddy.
  4. Did we mention he's devoted? So devoted in fact that he'll be very unhappy if left alone. He doesn't want some of your time, he wants all of it. And he'll let you know if he's displeased.


  5. In fact, when left alone, he may entertain himself in all sorts of ways that will surprise you.

  6. You know how you can barely get a collar on some dogs, while others are your best partner in playing dress-up? Brussels Griffons are not only compliant in silly human entertainment, but they may be the canine world's first fashionistas.


  7. An finally, how could “Star Wars” fans not love this dog? After all, the Ewoks look like they could have been modeled after a Brussels Griffon. But Griffons can also play the role of Yoda…
